This was the first of the Regional Libraries to be affiliated to the Nepal National Library, in 1995. The Municipality provides the building and two library staff, and the library is managed by an energetic team of volunteer Executive Committee members. The library collections are being built up and there are currently about 4000 books. Sixty-five newspapers and magazines are regularly being received and about 100 readers visit the library each day. The library is centrally located in Mahendrapool.
With support from DANIDA through UNESCO, the Pokhara Public Library is a centre for a Mobile Library Service to 5 local communities, based on schools and BPEP Resource Centres. This library has also been designated as a western point of American Centre to provide information services to the local community.
